I'm 2 or 3 cm dilated, would it be okay to take a bath and shave my legs?

  • I know you're not supposed to bathe after your water breaks, so if yours hasn't broke yet, your probably ok. I would shave in the shower just to be safe.

  • As long as your water hasn't broken, it's fine :)

  • I would, you won't be able to take one for awhile after you have your baby....

  • I would too, and you can take a bath w/ out soaking in your own dirty water!!! Just take a quick shower to get clean first, than run your bath water soak and enjoy, it will be awhile befor you can take another long warm relaxing bath. you could also sit on the side of the tub befor getting out and shave your legs. I'm 8 months pregnant thats the only way I can do mine.
